Richie Goggin

On a cold evening in November of wind driven sleet
Not a good day to be out of doors in the Town of Millstreet
In the Town Square in passing he greeted with a friendly hello
This is going back in time twenty eight years ago

Richie Goggin he was a nice person indeed
And of more of his kind the Human World is in need
For he never harmed anyone in any way
I only speak of him what is true to say

Beyond Rathcoole in Duhallow his native place
He was liked by many and his was a known face
A quiet sort of a person and free of conceit
Such people as he was a pleasure to meet

Devoted to his children and to Dolores his wife
A person who did live an honourable life
One known in Duhallow for decades of years
His passing from life would not have gone without tears

For all of us there is a last night and day
In St Mary's by Cashman's Hill his last remains lay
Hope his parting from life for him was a painless release
The good man Richie Goggin may he now rest in peace.
